Foil Stamping, Blind Debossing, , Burnishing Embossing Die Fabrication Charges

A one-time die charge of $99 will be charged for each foil stamp.   For menu cover orders requiring two foil stamps or two colors, there will be two die charges of $99 plus $3.50 per cover double run fee for the second foil stamp/color.

We will keep your artwork die on file for reorders so this charge will not be incurred again unless the logo or artwork changes and a new die needs to be created.

Foil Stamping and Foil Colors

This process involves the fabrication of a metal die that imprints your logo onto the product with the application of foil colors. Some materials may become recessed where the foil stamp imprint is applied. Please note that foil chemical properties can vary from color to color and therefore certain product and foil combination may not be appropriate.  We have a wide selection of foils to choose from.  See each individual product for foil color options.

Blind Debossing

This process involves the fabrication of a metal die that imprint and recesses your logo into the product without the application of foil.

Embossing

This process involves the fabrication of a metal die that creates a raised logo on your product without the application of foil. This option is currently available only for our Aged Copper Menu Covers.

Laser Engraving

This process involves laser engraving into wood and acrylic.  Vector artwork is preferred (EPS or AI file).  Standard logo size is 16 square inches or less.  Oversized logos may incur an additional laser fee. 

Screenprinting

Solid color inks are applied onto the product through a screen.  Each ink color will incur a screen charge of $50.00.
